Tom Watson has his team of greasers on Sandwell Labour Council. Three - Cllrs Moore, Hackett and now Bill Gavan - have even been given Cabinet positions. We all know about Moore and Hackett (The Sandwell Slasher) but quite what Gavan brings to the party apart from his foul-mouthed abusiveness is a mystery.
Gavan is a Watson rimmer and his quondam driver when the great man deigns to visit his constituency from his London home. With a string of failed businesses behind him at least you would expect Billy to know a successful businessman when he sees one and, lo, it has come to pass that Billy Boy has nominated Mr David Manners for the highly dubious "honour" of becoming a Freeman of Pyongyang - sorry, Sadwell.
As Sandwell Labour despise business and business people this would normally come as something of a surprise were it not for the fact that said Manners is a Tom Watson donor:
You scratch my back - I'll scratch yours!
It's a jungle out there.... (No jokes about weed please!)
